This is my favorite..Love all my watches but they tend to lose a minutes or so during the day...but this baby..is always right..Won this one at Auction on Ebay..Non working, with 218 owners guide and croco band with signed buckle..shes RGP..and wouldnt you know it..I got her running..in the end..she cost me $14..won her at $40 sold the guide and original band and buckle. I have an old watch guy with some new old stock bands..and he hooks me up..this one puts those youngsters bling bling   in there place..Just listen to her hum...She was a presentation watch was looking for a 218 back thats not engraved for someone else but  i can live with it for now.

Hello Dougedoug,

 

   Welcome to the forum. Someone does manufacture a clear case back for the 218. I am not sure of the rules for posting links to a site, so I will PM you the link. If this Mods read this and it is ok, I can post the link if anyone else is interested. I didnt buy one because my 218 is gold, and I wanted a solid gold caseback.

 

Joe
